Faux Surfaces in Polymer Clay Review


Faux Surfaces in Polymer Clay: 30 Techniques & Projects That Imitate Stones, Metals, Wood & More
by Irene Semanchuk Dean

In my opinion, this is the book on Faux techniques.  It begins with the usual section on clay basics.  The chapters include:  Gemstones, Metals, Natural Materials, Rocks and Stones, Surface Decorations.

For each technique there is first a section on how to do it, followed by a project.  The instructions are clear and easy to follow step by step.  There are plenty of pictures.  The book ends with 10 gallery pages.

I refer back to this book whenever I decide to do faux.  I particularily like the Turquoise, Jade, Cinnabar, and River rock.  They’re easy to do and the results are quite realistic.
